What's up everyone...?

So, I guess this is the place to start for forum newbies and as I am supposed to introduce myself, here goes:

I am an independent recording/performing artist, producer, sound engineer and CEO of my own independent recording label - Pagliacci Productionz. As an independent artist I don't make much money so I was VERY intrigued when I learned of bitcoin the other day.

I discovered bitcoin when I came across a news article saying that someone had stolen Mitt Romney's tax returns (lulz) and are holding them hostage for $1,000,000 or it's equivalent in bitcoins.

I did some reading and I REALLY like the idea of a decentralized currency, especially considering that bitcoin could be the beginning of bringing down "the fed". (For anyone who doesn't understand why it would be a good idea to bring down the federal reserve, head over to YouTube and look for the video titled "The American Dream" - yes, it IS animated, but VERY entertaining and VERY educational)

So, I started mining bitcoins the day before yesterday, right now I am cpu mining but I will be switching to gpu mining within the next 24 hours. I have joined multiple pools including: BitMinter, TripleMining, BitParking and DeepBit (My current favorites are between BitMinter and BitParking as I seem to have the best luck at these two places) and I am looking for and testing other pools as well if anyone would care to share their faves with me.

Also, if anyone is interested, TripleMining has "minipools" where we can work together as a team, if you'd like to join mine just register at http://c4n10.triplemining.com

I wish to contribute something to the bitcoin society (besides my hashes of course) so I am currently working on my own "newbie guide" though I have seen many others and eventually I hope to expand upon my programming knowledge so that I can provide useful tools for windows and *nix users.

Anyway, that's pretty much me in a nutshell, thanks for reading!!!

Hi Everyone, my nickname is Mookid and i'm new to this bitcoin world. I'm doing some mining right now.
With a ATI HD6850 i'm getting aprox 225 Mh/s.
I currently have 0.133 bitcoins in my wallet and my objective is to get enough bitcoins so i can trade them and buy a steam game.
I'm using the default OPENCL miner with GUIMINER, and i have the latest Catalyst 12.8 drivers, is there any tips that you can give to improve my mining numbers? so far i have been using the -v -w128 extraflag in GUIMINER to squeez all the workrate that my GPU can offer.

BTC will also further bring down the traditional music industry and give artists and musicians much more freedom and possibilities.

Hi Everyone! I'm Jovi and I'm here to introduce myself. I've started a small smoking accessory shop (Jovi's Emporium)and decided to take BitCoin payments! I figure that the more merchants that jump onto the BitCoin bandwagon, the better. Since I'm a new start-up business, I hope that we can take this into the 21st century and successfully grow together!  Smiley

LOL!!! I can only hope that you are right. I would really like to see bitcoin put the power of economy back into the hands of the people rather than the corporate superpowers, including the traditional music industry!!!

Glad you enjoyed it!!!

They might not actually even be aware of bitcoin, I think I might head over to their site and send an email or two, maybe they can even help promote bitcoin as an alternative to a centralized currency market...

Hi! My name's Josh, but on all the online games I play I go by Yoshu! So we'll stick with that. I've just recently gained an interest in the bitcoin, and the community that goes with it. The thought of a decentralized currency like this intrigues me greatly as I see alot of flaws in our (the US) monetary system. I'm pretty eager to start bitcoin mining myself and am working out a current business plan to upgrade into full scale mining rigs. The knowledge on this forum seems invaluable and I'll do my best to contribute to the system in any way that I can! If anyone has any tips or just wants to talk about bitcoins in general I'm more than happy to listen Smiley thank you for letting me be a part of this.

Hello everybody. John here. Pretty new to Bitcoin. I have read about bitcoin some time back, but did not really did much about it until recently. My initial thoughts were that it would die off. Surprisingly (and pleasantly), it is very very much alive.

I have great interest in computing. Hope to contribute to the bitcoin community.
